Are you booting from USB flash drive? What version of macOS are you running? Did you copy/paste your Serial, Board Serial, UUID to the included config.plist?

I'm running into some problems connecting a drawing tablet to my Hack. I'm using your latest EFI.
I have already started a thread, and Edhawk has been of great help.

Perhaps your expertise could shed some light on the situation.

Try going to System Preferences > Displays.
Select your tablet.
Hold the Option key and click on the "Scaled" button.
See if you have the option to lower refresh rate. If yes, lower it and see if it helps.

Also, you can launch Console and search for "HDCP" to see if you are getting any HDCP errors.

I do not get the option. When I mirror the tablet to the Dell display and lower that refresh rate, doesn't help either (if that would even help in the first place)

No HDCP errors.

No HDCP errors.

If you don't see any HDCP errors, you can rule out HDCP being the problem.

I've never had much luck getting HDMI running reliably on any of my hacks. I've always had to either (1) lower resolution and/or (2) refresh rate... Have you tried unplugging/replugging HDMI after the system has been booted?

Ok. I'll see if a DP to HDMI converter does the trick. Waiting for delivery. I'll check back then.

I have, no luck.

So to be clear after updating clover my system won’t boot.
I tried pasting the 3 items into the clover bios config. Still no go.
I can access files by booting to an old install with the USB stick.

Are you using your own USB fix?

Are you updating macOS or are you just trying to update the EFI and still using an old version of macOS? What version of macOS are you running?

What PCI-e cards do you have installed?
